    Jack Ryan, who has just been named CIA deputy director of intelligence, is enraged when he discovers that he has been left out of the loop of Columbian operations. Several of America's most highly trained soldiers are stranded on an unfinished mission that, according to all records, never existed. Ryan decides to get the men out.

    T. Webb says: "Hard listen"
    "Great book, terrible audio quality."
    Overall

    When you listen to this book you want to check your tape player, and clean the head and rollers, but wait, you can't because it is a digital recording. The quality of the recording is horrible. The person who produced this version of the recording needs to be fired along with the quality assurance people who you would expect to be checking the recording. This is not a Audible problem, the MP3 recordings from Brilliance are the same horrible clipped compression. I bought the Hunt for Red October on MP3 cd and it has the same flaws. Someone should have caught this.

    If one George Carlin audio is funny, then two are funnier, and three must be funniest, right? That's our thinking behind this new collection. It's a HighBridge library of laugh-out-loud, award-winning recordings featuring George himself performing many of his best bits.

    Francis says: "Awesome"
    "It is just Brain Droppings again."
    Overall

    I was furious to find I wasted a credit buying Brain Droppings again. Why the "help" would Audible sell the same title with 2 different names? Dont waste your credit.

    "Readers should do some research first"
    Overall

    The story is very good. I love every detail. The problem I have it with the readers. I have listened to every book in this series. It never fails to amaze me that from one book to another words are pronounced differently. Couldn't anyone involved with the editing of this project bother to listen to the previous books? It may seem like a small thing but when your favorite characters voice changes...or a name or place is so mispronounced that it takes time to realize what the speaker is trying to say...it is very distracting to say the least. It detracts from the overall enjoyment. I know that no one is going to re-record this or any of the other books in this series, but to the future recorders of any series of books, either do some research to voice and pronunciation or keep the same reader the entier series please.
